K-VEST: Improve your Swing

AthletiCo’s Golf Performance Center in Oak Brook proudly uses the innovative K-Vest to improve the game for professional and amateur golfers.  The K-Vest is a wireless motion analysis and training system developed by Bentley Kinetics, a leader in kinetic motion analysis.  First introduced at the 2006 PGA Merchandise Show, the K-Vest has since garnered much attention from top-level golf instructors including David Leadbetter, one of today’s most well-known and effective golf teaching professionals.

The technology behind the K-Vest is a three-sensor wireless system that strategically places sensors on a golfer’s hips, shoulders, and hand to measure motion during a golf swing.  The sensors immediately communicate to a computer a 3D analysis.  This analysis allows the instructor to instantly address critical aspects of a golfer’s body such as hip rotation, speed, sequence and timing.

Joe Estes is a level 1 certified golf fitness instructor through the Titleist Performance Institute, specializing in bio-mechanical evaluations of the golf swing: Joseph.Estes@athletico.com | 630-572-9700.
